In 2006, stoner comedien Doug Benson started joking about film for Doug Loves Movies, a weekly comedy podcast recorded in front of a live audience at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. Since then, he has produced hundreds of shows featuring a wide range of guests, including acclaimed actors such as John Lithgow, famed film critic Leonard Maltin, and fellow stand-up acts Brian Posehn, Zach Galifianakis, Sarah Silverman, Patton Oswalt, and Paul F. Tompkins. On August 10th, Benson brings Doug Loves Movies to the Pittsburgh Improv for a special one-night event.
Doug Loves Movies begins at 4:20 p.m., doors open at 3:30 p.m. Attendees must be 18 and over. Tickets are $17 and are available for purchase at the Pittsburgh Improv website.
